5:25 pm
seems to work. the problem -- men can't handle the emotions that accompany it. the side effects include mood swings, depression, acne and increased libido. the emotional problems got so bad in some cases -- the study was cut short. on the other hand -- of the roughly 300 men who got the shots - only 4 became fathers. the injection involved a cocktail of hormones. it all sounds promising -- but the gender gap in contraceptive use probably won't close anytime soon. no further development is planned for the shot.with the study's authors saying a lot more research is needed. grant and vicki? >> grant:scientiest at washington university school of medicine are also working on a form of male birth control. this one is a little more unconventional. it's the zika virus. in a new study, scientists found that the virus affects the fertility in male mice.

>> steve:steve aveson is here to show us the state of the race, eight days before election day. first let's point out. for as many as 22 million people, the election's over. they've already voted. and many of those votes are in battleground states, where trump needs to move the needle in his direction. nat in cleveland, polling places were jammed. voters stood out in the rain to cast their ballots. ohio is one of a half=dozen states that will determine the election. that's where clinton headed today.
5:35 pm
presidential nominee "i'm sure a lot of you may be asking what this new email story is about and why in the world the fbi would decide to jump into an election with no evidence of any wrongdoing with just days to do. that's a good question. ha." on friday f.b.i. director james comey told congress bureau investigators are looking at a new batch of emails that may pertain to the clinton private server investigation. they were found on a computer belonging to anthony weiner -- the estranged husband of top clinton aide huma abedin. weiner is currently under investigation for allegedly sexting a minor. the news is breathing new life into donald trump's campaign. presidential nominee i have to give the f.b.i. credit. that was so bad what happened originally and it took guts for director comey to make the move that he made. unclear right now: how the news is impacting the race. trump's numbers were climbing before the story broke. but he can't win, even if he sweeps all the states on the toss=up map. clinton only needs to hold onto the states leaning her way to reach the goal of 270 electoral votes. and according to the new york times upshot prediction, she still has a 90 percent chance of
5:36 pm
winning. donald trump was in the blue state of michigan with a message he hopes will tilt the odds in his favor. presidential nominee hillary wants to blame everyone else for her mounting legal troubles but she had brought all of this on herself. hillary is the one who set up an illegal private email server in a closet to shield her criminal activity. hillary is the one who engaged in a corrupt pay for play scheme. dozens of u.s. states are clearly worried about protecting their election systems against cyber-threats. catherine heenan is here with details on the big step they're taking. it's a sign of the times. amidst all the talk of 'rigged' elections -- all but eight states have now asked the department of homeland security for help in protecting their systems. even though experts claim it would be very difficult to actually affect the outcome of a national election.the d-h-s is offering to help test and prepare election systems. it's not just the 42 states which have said yes -- some county and local agencies are also signing up for help. the process includes security advice - and scanning for any weak spots. more than 20 states 'have' experienced threats to hack into their voter registration data bases.and a hack in illinois actually worked. information on 90-thousand voters was accessed. an florida judge is ordering the city of orlando to release the 9-1-1 calls between omar mateen and police. circuit judge margaret schreiber made the decision this morning. news groups pressed for the release of the audio recordings so the public can evaluate the police response to the june massacre. schreiber says she cannot make a decision on whether to release the other 9-1-1 calls after she listens to them. two-thirds of emergency calls from that night have already been made public. city officials objected to releasing of the audio recordings saying the calls depict suffering plus the video that shows why you don't mess with pandas. what one man did that resulted in this. right now-- the most entertaining team in the bay area is not the godlen state warriors.
5:37 pm
but-- the oakland raiders. it's probably the funnest team in all of sports, not just here in the bay. the silver and black.put on a show this weekend with a thrilling overtime victory against the tampa bay buccaneers. oakland.remains at the top of the afc west standings.

remains in severe drought. and nearly all the dry areas are south of san francisco. on the other hand.they've released color-coded maps to show us that things 'have' been getting better over the last year. this is the drought map for almost exactly one year ago. the darker the color here -- like the deep clay color and the bright red -- the dryer the area. when 92 percent of the state was in severe drought. the dark colors - covering huge chunks of california. the latest drought map is just out and you can see a big difference. the deep colors are confined to a much smaller area. and in the far north - counties including humboldt, siskiyou and parts of mendocino and trinity counties are no longer in drought at all. and much of the greater bay area has been downgraded to "abnormally dry." most water experts say it would take a very wet winter across the state, however, to end the drought. steve and pam? a recent poll of millennials found, that a meteor striking earth, was more popular than hillary clinton and donald trump. >> britteny: the north bay is going to see a lot cooler cerros

out most states . require that write-in candidate register ahead of time, for their names to count. check this out, from ballotpedia. write-in candidate have to pre- register in 34 states. 9 states don't allow write-ins at all. here in washington -- and in eight states -- election officials *will count write-ins . but many times only if that person wins. we asked some early voters .does that change their mind?
6:38 pm
i think ultimately you're throwing your vote away if you decide to write in a candidate or vote third-party. you may have a thousands people with a thousand different votes with a thousand different write- ins, so it can be a lost vote. you should be counted no matter what chance: even if you vote for betty boop? yeah. if she's running, we'll vote for her, too. hahaha. d.c. election officials emphasize that they *would count individual betty boop votes but only if the total of write-in ballots outnumbered traditional votes. reporting in washington, i'm chance seales. as you saw from the map. in california. write-in candidates must apply and be certified by the state. the state does have an official list. and there are a couple of names that you will recognize. grant lodes is here with the story.
6:39 pm
this is pretty interesting stuff. if i decided to write in you, steve and pam, my vote would not count. but there are options if you do not like what you see on the ballot. this is the official list from the california secretary of state. in all. five tickets have qualified as write-in options. and two immediately jump out if you look closely. bernie sanders and evan mcmullin. sanders of course came up short in a hard-fought battle for the democratic nomination. mcmullin has made noise as an conservative alternative for republicans who can't stomach donald trump. so if you write-in sanders along with tulsi gabbard for vice president, your vote counts. same story if you write-in evan mcmullin and nathan johnson. that's an acceptable ticket as well and it will be counted. so there you have it. not happy with the major party candidates and want to make your voice heard and the ballot box-- there are options in california. you can find the list on our website, kron 4 dot com in the decision 2016 section. steve and pam.
